BOOM!!! I Just Got Rear-Ended...OUCH!!!

"Out of nowhere, this car smashed into me"

Imagine sitting at Joyce Street exit stoplight in Clarksburg enjoying your favorite song. Relaxed and feeling the spring sun on your face. Then out of nowhere you hear squealing tires and then feel a booming jolt forward. Your car rattles and then your chin smacks your chest and then is thrown back into the headrest in less time than it takes to blink.

Whiplash Results

In whiplash, the neck straightens from its normal curvature. This change results in the joints wearing out faster.

Car accidents like this one are way too common and can lead to long term injuries even if there is not an immediate onset of pain. Whiplash causes tears in the muscles and ligaments. Often times, other structures including nerves, discs and bones are also injured. Left untreated, many of these injuries lead to long term chronic pain and underlying damage. Even low speed collisions can cause significant damage.
